POEM

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

October 2018 begins with rain and wind.  A good day for blogs and books.

Two Poems

clouds with some blue
outside my study window
some days God seems so clear
other days I must dwell more deeply
in my reading of the Psalms

*

writing and reading
I don’t see the dust

then seeing
I remember

and know He does not forget
and understands

with Love

Psalm 103: 14 (KJV)
For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth we are dust.

after many

after many
good conversations
one bird
sings the day
to sunset

small blankets

as if they could
store the sun
small blankets
on a chair
add color to
the scene
as they await
to warm
another time
